    She’s appeared on the five-dollar note, had a suburb named after her and even inspired a character in Dickens’ Bleak House, but what do we really know of one of Australia’s most influential historical figures, Caroline Chisholm? Goldman’s lively biography offers a portrait of a complex and determined woman who not only advocated passionately and successfully for the rights and welfare of Australia’s earliest female immigrants, but also left a lasting legacy on our approach to multiculturalism, employment and education. This is a timely and engaging read about early activism; one can’t help but wonder how Chisholm would respond to modern-day injustices.
